Alongside pics and videos of Tristan with their kids, Khloe penned a lengthy message to "the best father, brother & uncle."

"Your love, attention, silly dances, hugs, carpool rides, bed time rituals, the way u show up for them. All of the above means more than you'll ever know to your family of littles," she wrote. "My birthday wish for u is that u continue to crave change, healing, and transformation. Be strong, be kind, be patient, be free."

"Continue to Make your soul and your mommy proud," Khloe added in reference to Tristan's mom, Andrea, who died in January. "Happy birthday baby daddy."

"Happy birthday, Tristan! I know this year has been hard so far, but you seem to find the positive and the light amongst the sadness," Kris wrote in a series of posts to her Instagram Story. "You look at the glass half full and it has been so great watching you grow as a dad, a friend, a brother, an uncle and a son."

"You have shown me such inspiration and many lessons when it comes to how you deal with adversity and challenges that seem insurmountable. You have used these challenges as opportunities to better yourself day by day. And I know how proud your mom is of the man you have become," she added. "Thank you for being such a special part of our family. We love you very much."
